There is this saying that continues to repeat itself in my head. It goes something like this, “Positive mind equals positive heart.” For a while, I couldn’t understand what this saying was signaling to me. Every morning I would wake up and it would repeat itself. So two days ago I decided to write those words down in my notebook. As I was looking at these five words in front of me something hit me. When you have a positive mind your heart is full of nothing but joy. Here are some side effects of a positive mind:
- You function better
- You think clearer
- Focus more
- Happiness is at an all-time high
- Uplift others
- Smiling at complete strangers and the list goes on.
Let’s focus on the word positive. When you say positive, what is the meaning that comes to mind? There are two definitions but the one I want to focus on is with no possibility of doubt. To me, that means you wake up with a mindset that says I’m not letting anything stand in my way. No matter obstacle, people’s opinion you will continue to move forward because you made the choice to be positive. I personally think positive minds are beneficial because they eliminate the things that are not suppose to be in your life. A Positive mind starts to reveal certain things to you. Have you ever realize that when you speak positively that people who once enjoyed your company tend to shy away from you. They call less, they invite you places less to them your just no fun to be around anymore. Don’t look at this as a bad thing. Look at it as an excellent thing. Positivity eliminates people who have a negative vision. You are sending signals that are saying your negative energy has no place here. So remove yourself.
As I get older, I start to look at things with a positive mind instead of not trusting my judgment. I’m starting to believe in the fact that you need to focus on the positive more instead of thinking about the negative. When I started this blog, I’m not going to lie my mind was racing before I hit the publish button because I was allowing myself to think of all the what-ifs. I know you are wondering how did I stop those thoughts? Well here is how I did it. I started thinking of the positives. In my mind and heart, I feel like I’m giving someone a voice or that push that someone needs. Sometimes it’s your fear that can lead others to unprecedented heights. To me, that was all the positive I needed to push the publish button. Now I wake up with a mission to touch a few more each and every day. You may not think a positive mind has an effect on others but it does. Just take a moment and think about how you feel when you come in contact with a grumpy person. Their mood affects yours. A positive mind works the same way. Here’s my challenge for you. Whenever you feel like you want to look at the negatives I challenge you to see the positives first. For some, that can be a challenge but for others, it comes naturally. Try it.
